For the cage made of metal bars, see Cage (metal bar container).

The Case (入れ物 Iremono?), or Cage, is a reoccurring gimmick in the Sonic the Hedgehog series that first appeared in Sonic Heroes. It is a variant of the Containers meant to hold objects isolated from the player. By meeting certain criteria, the player can open them and access the objects they hold.

Description

The Case is a cube-shaped container built with highly advanced technology. However, the Case's design is often inconsistent, differing between games. Its purpose is to hold objects within them that the player can or must use or are going after, such as Item Boxes, Springs and even enemies. In most cases, it is obligatory for the player to get to the Cases' contents to they can progress with the Stage, though there are also times where opening them is optional.

The Cases are always locked when first encountered and are impervious to attacks from both playable characters and enemies alike, meaning they cannot be forced open by any means. To open them, the player has to either destroy the surrounding enemies or press a nearby Switch.

Games appearances

Sonic Heroes

The Case's first appearance was in Sonic Heroes, where it can be found in almost every Stage in the game. In this game, the Cases consists of a square metal floor with a red outline and three metal frames in the same shape and size as its floor floating above it in a stack. Also, on top of it, it has a thick lid with a retractable surface opening. When opened, the Chase's lit will retract and the walls side down, leaving only the floor behind.

In gameplay, the Cases mostly contain Goal Rings, Chao, Item Box items, Warp Flowers, Switches and for a few mission, even enemies that must be destroyed.

Shadow the Hedgehog

In Shadow the Hedgehog, there are two variants of the Case. The first ones look like black hourglasses that glow red, hinting that they are inventions of the Black Arms, and the second ones look like the Cases in Sonic Heroes, except they are green and have the GUN logo on the top and bottom.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), the Cases are cubic containers consisting only of a red cubic frame and have surfaces made of light blue energy. In this game, they are usually used for guarding Switches and Springs. It should be noted that the player can use the objects inside the Cases without opening them by using the Chaos Snap, though this may leave him imprisoned in the Case until the player restarts the Action Stage.

Sonic Generations

In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, the Cases can be found the various Challenge Acts. In this game, they have the same design as they had in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) and they primary contain gimmicks the player can be used to reach higher areas.
